Victims and survivors of Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking, Sex Trafficking, and Dating Violence are on a long journey as they navigate the web of safety needs, trauma, life changing events, resources, and system responders. The violence against Native women that leads to their need for emergency shelter and Transitional Housing options comes from a history of oppression that is playing out today. The rates of violence against Native women are significantly higher than other populations of women.
Red Wind Consulting has Transitional Housing Peer Visits available to assist in creating or enhancing housing programs to offer an environment with a safe and open space that takes into consideration the needs, desires, comfort, dignity, and support of those being served.
The Peer Visit will be a one-day visit to a Transitional Housing program allowing grantees to tour a facility, meet with their staff, and learn new ideas of how other programs operate and develop strategies to complex issues. Visits will focus on learning from established Tribal Transitional Housing programs that have developed solid responses to help heal Native women and their children who are affected by violence.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE
OVW Tribal Grantees of Consolidated Tribal Assistance Solicitation (CTAS) are able participate in Peer Visits using their OVW travel set aside funds.
Red Wind is intentionally limiting the group to eight participants to allow for in-depth conversations with the Peer Program staff.
